Everybody loves throwing shapes on the dance floor (even if they’re not very good at it). I remember trying to replicate the moves after watching dance films like Flashdance, Footloose, and – of course – Dirty Dancing. I thought I was amazing, but I’m sure I looked like I had two left feet. Anyway, they’ve remade Footloose, so we took the LOVEFiLM members’ pulse on the Best Dance Moves in Film.
Travolta’s slick, hand-jiving, solo routine in Saturday Night Fever and Kevin Bacon’s highly-charged moves from Footloose came next – I just hope the remake does justice to the original; not too sure about the introduction of line-dancing!
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan in Step Up took eighth, with their fancy footwork and sexual tension. And the lads from The Full Monty were next, with a routine that you simply could not take your eyes off – need I say more?!
Hopefully, just the mention of some dance classics has got your fingers clicking (add to rental list), your toes tapping, and your feet itching to recreate the best dance movie moves all over your living room floor. Just mind the lamps…
